The Group 1 winning son of Authorized started this campaign as good as could have been expected with a 2nd to champion mare Winx, but has since won his past two starts by a combined margin of 13.6 lengths.

Trainer John O’Shea has the six-year-old gelding in career best form and he is certainly the horse to beat.

Reigning Turnbull Stakes champ Preferment has drawn alongside Hartnell in barrier 5 but doesn’t appear to be at his best this campaign.

However, the son of Zabeel has won three Group 1 races from four starts at Flemington with his only failure coming in the Melbourne Cup.

Dominant Naturalism Stakes (2000m) winner Jameka has drawn barrier 7 in the 13-horse field and could be the main challenger to Hartnell.

The Robert Hickmott-trained The United States will appreciate getting back to a bigger track following his eye-catching run in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) and will jump from barrier 2 with Damien Oliver aboard.
